Why don't tables pagebreak?
How can I make it so ALL the tables in my book will just follow the same formatting rules (regarding pagebreaks) as paragraphs of text?
Please note that most of my tables are within a multicolumn environment, because I need to have them side-by-side in order to save space, and not have too many extra pages in my book. (There are lots of long tables in my book).
Longtable arranges that the columns on successive pages have the same widths. This last contrasts with the superficially similar supertabular package.
So, I want to have the columns be the same widths after they pagebreak, but CTAN also states that Longtable doesn't work in a multicolumn environment.
So I'm not sure, which package to use. Please tell me what package I should use, and also briefly tell me HOW to use it.
